RE: Boomerang with Sidecar
Another way to look at it is that the 'Rang has 11 functions that can be
assigned to buttons. With the side car you have 8 "bonus button" slots and
dedicated buttons. I'm figuring that I'll have access to all the 'Rang's
functions once the sidecar is hooked up. Speaking of which, my local guy
told me that Mike included a MIDI cable in the box for connecting the 'Rang
and the sidecar. Nice! I'll be heading up to the shop to pick mine up
sometime in the next few days. Very psyched. Somebody mentioned earlier
about using an M13 and the 'Rang together. I've been having a blast feeding
my M9 into my 'Rang. It's a wonderland of loopy multi-effected fun.

I haven't received it yet. Mike sent it out yesterday (Monday).
The way I see it, since there are a few dedicated buttons on the Sidecar,
that frees up the original two bonus buttons on the main Rang unit, so
will give me at least 4 additional functions, if not more.
On the Sidecar, you have:
B1) Stack/Momentary Stack (Dedicated)
B2) Play/Stop All (Dedicated)
B3) Erase/Erase All (Dedicated)
Bonus 1,2,3 and 4 (Capable of Once, Octave, Reverse, Thru Mute, Play
Fade, Panic, Copy)
And of course the original 4 bonus buttons are now freed up since Stack,
Play/Stop and Erase/Erase All are all dedicated.
I'll report back as soon as I receive it and try it out.

So Brian, would you say that there are "enough" switches now, with two
bonus (double duty) switches and the three dedicated switches?
It would have been nice to have an additional expression pedal jack-since
you can control feedback and volume now . . .
